Since I was in middle school I have dreamed of becoming a physical education teacher. When I visited Lander University I knew it was the perfect fit for me. I chose Lander because it offers an exceptional physical education program, with top-of-the-line professors and great facilities for learning. Lander has so much to offer to students: a beautiful campus, helpful professors and it is located in the perfect college town. As a physical education major I have performed my clinicals in the Greenwood public schools. This has given me the opportunity to gain skills and hands-on experience that has helped me on my journey to become an educator. I am a Teaching Fellow at Lander and a member of the leadership team for the Physical Education and Exercise Science Club. Being involved in these organizations has encouraged me to become a more disciplined student, a stronger leader and a more confident individual. Upon graduating I know that I will be more than prepared as an educator and that is because of the Physical Education Department at Lander University.
